Green Coconut Chutney

My MIL found the coconut we get here not too tasty to make a good coconut chutney. She produced her interesting twist to a coconut chutney.
1. Grated coconut - 1 cup
2. Green chillis - 2 nos
3. Red chillis (optional) - 1 nos
4. Coriander leaves
5. Curry leaves
6. Udaicha Kadalai/pottu kadalai (fried gram dhal) - 1 tbsp
7. Peanuts (optional)
8. Oil
9. Salt to taste

Method de preparation
1. Heat some oil in a tava and add red chillis, curry leaves, pottu kadalai, peanuts, red chillis and fry for couple of mins. Lets call this the roasted lot
2. In a mixie, add the grated coconut, green chillis, salt to taste, corriander leaves and the roasted lot and grind it with some water(if required). The chutney needn't be completely smooth. It is tasty even when it is slightly coarse.

That's it! Bon App!
